This is how Christmas morning went at our house; the pictures speak volumes:
Jaybird did get the baby doll she had asked Santa for.
The kids are always nice and sweet on Christmas morning; Jaybird even stopped to give me the present she had bought for me with her own money, before she opened all her own presents. She was very excited and proud to give a present (a bar of dark chocolate). What a charmer.
Mudpuppy has been giving his own presents: lots of smiles.
Tomorrow we make our way through the so-called super storm (which turned out to be nothing more than a couple days of steady drizzle) to visit my family in the Twin Cities.
